The purpose of TRJE15 is to train and test the NATO Response Force, a high readiness and technologically advanced force comprising of land, air, maritime and special forces units capable of being deployed quickly on operations wherever needed.

      Please, my friend, stop for a moment and think of what you’ve said.
      The Moscow regime isn’t even defending its own borders, its own check points and its own citizens killed in Russia by Ukrainian government shelling.
      A far better analogy could be made between Vladimir Putin and Czechoslovakia’s Edvard Beneš rather than between the first and Adolf Hitler.
